Q: Do I have to buy poutine at the event?

A: Premiere tickets are $40. They include early entry to the event, the official 2018 NH PoutineFest T-shirt ($20 value), an NH Poutinefest tote bag, and are eligible for special opportunities. General Admission tickets are $30. All tickets include samples 🙂
Following NH PoutineFest, all ticket holders are invited to join us for Franco-American Heritage Night at the ballpark, as our guests. The Fisher Cats will be taking on the Reading Fightin Phils followed by an Atlas Fireworks show!

Seattle-Tacoma. They lost to the Patriots, but won in poutine searches, huzzah!
